Paris Saint Germain chief Nasser al-Khelaifi has reiterated that the club are not going to let Edinson Cavani leave this summer.

Cavani’s future has been called into question in recent months, with the player himself admitting to being frustrated at playing wide on the right – although he has still managed 16 goals in 25 starts.

Premier League duo Manchester United and Chelsea have both been strongly linked, but PSG are standing firm over the Uruguay international.

"Cavani? He will stay here – he has a contract with us," al-Khelaifi told Canal+ after PSG secured the Ligue 1 title on Wednesday evening.

Al-Khelaifi also spoke about UEFA’s impending Financial Fair Play sanctions, but he insists that they will not prevent the club from moving forward.

"About Financial Fair Play, I am still very confident, we are still in talks with UEFA. I don’t confirm the sanctions – we will play in the Champions League, but may be with conditions.

"We are going on with our project and no one can stop us from dreaming."
